I have no idea what, exactly, it is. But it appears, to me, to be some sort of apothecary jar/bottle thingy. Notice that the "stopper" doesn't really "stop" anything. It just loosely dangles there inside the bottle, itself stopped from falling to the bottom by the little knob located about 2 inches from the top.
Since anything inside this bottle would certainly evaporate, I am at a loss to know for what purpose it could have been used. The dangly stopper thingy that doesn't stop anything is 7 and 1/8th inches in total length. The bottle itself is 6 and 3/8th inches tall and 1 and 3/8th inches in diameter. Properly put together, the whole thing is 8 and 1/2 inches tall.
It's a bottle certainly not meant to hold perfume which is too precious to allow to evaporate. Anything containing alcohol would not last long within it.
What is this thing? Does anyone have a clue?
